Default Protopterus aethiopicus (Marbled Lungfish)

Went to JZX this afternoon and happen to saw the Marbled Lung in one of the tanks. I IBS so I bagged it home
Sharing some pics, sorry for the low quality.. Still learning how to use DSLR.

At this size, will be better to keep it solo since they are slow feeder and also good to power feed it.

I see, maybe I'll transfer it to a temporary 2x1x1 tank for it first while I deworm the fish.
